‘Some Like it Hot’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Chloe. From a limited edition of 50, the print is signed and numbered by the artist. Each piece is hand finished with Hatton Garden Diamond Dust and other embellishments, making each piece unique.
Contemporary artist Chloe works with a range of mixed media and digital approaches, combining strong, photographic elements with printed and painted embellishments for a fresh and innovative aesthetic. Her work considers the manipulation of the digital image, and every piece explores the possibility for an unexpected sense of dimensionality, transforming the flat, printed picture into a three dimensional illusion.
‘Some Like it Hot’ depicts the iconic Marilyn Monroe, decked out in provocative, S&M attire: her tight vinyl corset and elbow-length gloves glisten in the black and white light, while rows of silver chains and buckled strips of leather adorn her chest, running up to her neck collar.
Only her parted, pouting lips have been colourised: a deep shade of scarlet, for stunning, sultry contrast against the monochrome photograph. A distressed, American flag comprises the background, all awash with dulled metallic tones, graffiti scrawls, and blocky text which reads ‘Some Like it Hot’, for a truly iconic work of contemporary art.
